They must be pretty good tires, I mean RV mentions them every time he's interviewed on the podium! I'll admit though I don't know much about them, because until RV mentioned them I've never heard of them. For some reason I thought he was on Dunlops or something, but maybe Falken is a Dunlop model I've just missed when tire shopping?

Anyway, RV hooks up incredibly out there in the dirt in the corners and stuff. So these Falken tires must be the best in the business. Anyone tried them yet?

They are a little tough to get seated on the rim... the size just doesn't seem right!

You'd be better off investing in some of that Monster "Air" he sips on the podium. That stuffs awesome!!!

Sumitomo Tires owns Falken, Ohtsu AND Dunlop....Research..is all it takes. If Sumitomo wants to push Falken tires for cars and trucks in the US, over bragging about Dunlops winning the race, that is their decision.

Whatever happened to those pickles he was promoting? Must have not been that good since they lasted only a couple of races.

He's still with them. Says he's not big on the spicy ones though. Here's a link with the last update on their site. Wey, Osborne, Blose and Ginofffli also draw support. I think Wey's wrench, Big Nasty is a co-founder.

I'm trying to get some Traxxas R/C cars, DVS shoes, and Muscle Milk to put on/in my bike, too.

Wait, what? They don't make dirt bike parts?

Mandingo! That's right, I forgot the name. If the co-founder is a mechanic for Wey, that makes sense why it is related to MX/SX.

I don't like pickles so I wouldn't know if they are good or not..

I don't like them either. The good thing is all the guys there have a moto background and they support riders where possible. :thumbsup:
